If you’re going through a separation, you’ll probably feel angry at times. It’s a natural reaction to a life-changing event.
It’s OK to feel angry. It’s also important to learn to process it in a way that’s healthy for you and your family.
Think about what you can do to make your own life easier and reduce the impact on your children.
Ignoring emotions doesn’t make them go away. Bottling them up can even be destructive, or make you feel ill. Instead, try different ways to manage your feelings.
Children will pick up on how you handle your anger. They may even copy your actions when they feel angry themselves. If you shout and throw things to show you’re angry, so will they.
We take your safety and privacy seriously
You don’t have to share your details with us – there are lots of reasons why you might want to remain anonymous, which we will respect. All calls are confidential, and we will always seek your agreement before we share any of your details with other organisations. The only time we will share information without your consent is if we think there is a life-threatening situation, or if you or someone else might be at risk of significant harm. On these occasions we may need to contact the Police, Ambulance Service or Children’s Social Care.
We also share anonymised data with the commissioners of this service. By using Parent Talk, you understand and give your explicit consent to this.
Your email address will not be used for any reason beyond giving you parenting information, support and advice.
